Major pain points

Does your print shop suffer from slow estimation bottleneck?

PrintVis lets you build quotes in a variety of ways, depending on the complexity of the job and the way your company works.

 Templates for estimating can be built from any job – simplifying repeat orders and storing all the vital details – materials, machines, schedule, subcontractors, etc. – that go into pricing a job. This way estimates can be generated in a fraction of the normal time and your estimator rest assured that the price is right.

Quick Quotes for simple/routine orders can be made by CSRs instead of your high-paid estimator, freeing him/her to work on the complicated stuff.

Losing money on a job when an estimator leaves something out of a complex calculation (inaccurate estimate)?

The flexible setup makes it easy for the users to esti­mate jobs accurately, using the templates customized to your specific needs. Quote requests that require multiple options are easily made with a few clicks.

PrintVis reduces errors by asking all the right ques­tions and guiding an estimator through all the relevant factors that go into pricing a job correctly.

Customer service representatives don't know where a job is?

With Case Management, every aspect of a job, from quote to production to invoicing and job costing – is maintained in a single repository. Status codes allow anyone to know where a job is within the company workflow.

This data is easily accessible on multiple devices – even the salesperson’s cell phone while they’re out in the field.

Doing work for customers that owe you money?

With PrintVis it’s easy for your financial officers to set up alerts when a customer has an outstanding balance or has exceeded their credit limit.

Poor planning is causing inactive machines and paper waste?

Time, capacity and use are generated automatically during the estimation when a new order is made.

The system makes suggestions for optimal production efficiency. The system allows you to see open machine capacity, available man-hours and planned produc­tion, with multiple planning methods tailored to a print business’ specific production style. This includes optional “bottleneck planning” when necessary.

Having trouble with keeping track of inventory/warehouse?

PrintVis grants you a full overview of your purchase needs for both goods and services based on individual job planning. Reliable inventory forecasting helps to keep supplies at optimal levels and saves company capital. Additional inventory management features lead to increased efficiency in the usage of paper, help you to reduce scrap, and allow you to make best use of inventory already in stock.

PrintVis allows you to use centralized purchasing, individual purchasing per job coordinator, or a combi­nation of the two. PrintVis also grants you full control over which items are to be managed by automated purchase suggestions in the system.

Poor communication with Shop Floor/production team?

The Shop Floor module retrieves data on consump­tion of goods and time directly from your production and posts the information to each production order in real-time. This grants you an updated status of every order in your production and your available machine capacity.

The online real-time electronic job ticket in the Shop Floor module will ensure that your production team always has the latest production instructions on hand, with all information drawn directly from the database.

PrintVis provides complete information for every job within Case Management, with permissions set on a per-user basis, so that production management can see details of every job’s progress out on the shop floor.

Invoicing jobs takes too long?

The invoicing of jobs is fully integrated into the esti­mating, the consumption and the job costing. Based on this information you can build the invoice with only one click.

Invoices can be built straight from the quoted price, the final price for the order, the actual consumption, any billable overtime, additional quantities, etc.

Jobs take too long?

The “Case Management” function in PrintVis is designed to be the daily tool of administration – the “home base” – for all employees involved with the orders. It grants a full view of cases with detailed information on deadlines, delivery dates, customer information, job history, etc. With this module you can control and follow the flow of jobs throughout your company, with a full overview of outstanding quotes, confirmed orders and jobs in progress.

Don't know which items should be shipped and when?

PrintVis lets your shipping department view every required shipment date, document partial shipments and even partial invoices when needed. Once again, within Case Management every employee who has the required permissions can get a complete overview of the job data – and can send notes and updates to colleagues in different departments that will remain recorded in the case history for future reference.
